Since Drew Dorling founded the company in 2010, Kernow Controls has grown based on the simple principles of being the best in our field and delivering what we promise.
Drew began his career as an apprentice with controls giant Honeywell in the 1990s. After a hugely successful 15 years, and having designed control systems for some of the UK’s most complex engineering projects, he branched out on his own to start Kernow Controls, with his first project as Design Lead for the BMS at Heathrow Terminal 2A – a £10million+ project that extended to incorporate the complex control of a 50MW Cooling Station.
Since then, we’ve forged a reputation as one of the UK’s leading control system engineering companies. We’ve designed and installed building management and smoke control systems in some incredible buildings, from high-end residential, hotels, sports centres and schools to pioneering pharmaceutical facilities, underground railway lines and the world’s second busiest airport. Our home is in Penryn in Cornwall, but we work on systems across the UK and beyond.
The Kernow Controls Team
We’re a small and agile team with some of the most talented and capable engineers in the industry, renowned for their ability to see control logic with a clarity that others don’t.
